A second generation frontal solution program

A computer program for the assembly and solution of symmetric positive definite equations as met in the finite element analysis based on the frontal solution algorithm by irons is presented. The program features improved direct access blocked i/o and the use of front partitioning which makes the problem size which can be solved practically independent of the size of the computer memory. In addition the use of fast vector processors is considered which should improve cpu times considerably (a).
